So, that's the situation. What are the alternatives to monkey see -
monkey click? I would like to be able to defer mounting of USB drives
occasionally to do fsck on them. But I also like to have a mount point
created in /media only when it is needed. (I don't remember ever
having fsck run on a USB drive under Lenny, so maybe the problem has
always been.)

I guess the question now is what do people do about the reliability
of plug-in disk storage? This question has always existed, but I'm
just realizing I don't have an answer. Thoughts? Suggestions?
